When I arrived at reception this morning I was informed that the boats were not running today due to the high winds associated with a typhoon (it turns out it was Typhoon Lekima, it was rather big.). To be fair, it was raining slightly and there has been a decent wind the past few days. He said that it’d probably be 2 days until they’re able to leave. I cannot fly out of Phu Quoc as I don’t have my passport so I have no choice but to wait it out. I can barely afford 2 days as it is time-wise, I hope it doesn’t turn out to be more or else things are going to get very hectic or disappointing with regards to Angkor. He gave me a discount for the bungalow, which was good of him. It’s now tipping it down by the way.

You may think that being stuck on a tropical beach island is heaven, it’s not when it’s raining! The sea looks as hospitable as the North Sea, it feels just like home in a way! There is sediment washed into the sea staining the first 30-odd metres out to sea a vivid tan colour. At least this island is dirt cheap due to me lounging about the place and not really doing much. I’ve got through a few books whilst I’ve been here and I’ve certainly enjoyed my time here, it’s just time for me to leave and I can't.
